I remember going to the movies to see “Erin Brockovich” the weekend it released. While the rest of America focused on Julia Roberts’ Oscar-worthy performance, I was seething over the story. As a health advocate, I was appalled over the fact that a utilities company could pollute a city’s drinking water with chromium-6, a known carcinogen! As we learned at the end of the movie, though, the good guys won and the bad guys had to pay dearly for their actions. I wish the story ended there, but it doesn’t. All these years later, chromium-6 is still present in the water supplies of millions of American homes, so I think it’s obvious that sometimes you have to take your own precautionary measures. I’m now filtering my own water with the Home Master Junior sink top water filter. This home filtering system is well suited to absorb chemicals, and can remove up to 95% of VOCs, TOCs, chlorine, and other chemicals that could lead to a major health risk.
